What you should know about Dupont Circle

When can I find the best deals on Hotels in Dupont Circle?

The historic Dupont Circle roundabout lies just north of the White House in Washington D.C. and links together some of the city's most important districts. Grand hotels line the boulevards and streets that lead off the traffic circle and ideally place guests in the heart of the downtown area. Like most parts of the U.S., the summer months are the busiest. If you visit during the crisp fall months after the summer break hordes have returned home, the climate can be much more agreeable and, as they contend for your custom, you can take advantage of some seriously good Dupont Circle hotel deals.

What are the Top Hotels in Dupont Circle?

The Embassy Row Hotel is squeezed between impressive townhouses and country embassies. That might suggest that it's stuffy and formal, but that's not the case. With its on-trend decor and a wooden decked rooftop terrace, complete with outdoor pool and colorful couches, you may very well think you've just arrived in the hippest part of town. Though The Fairfax at Embassy Row sits on the same street it's a very different beast, with presidential suites, an opulent lobby, and a crystal chandeliered function room. The Dupont Circle Hotel offers style and comfort within walking distance of some of the most iconic landmarks.

What are Hotels like in Dupont Circle?

For such a small district, there is a surprisingly diverse mix of hotels in Dupont Circle to choose from. For style and indulgence, stay in one of the formal properties where bellhops whisk your luggage away to your room on gold-colored trolleys, and high tea is still served in the afternoons. If all that feels a little too formal, pick one of the hipper hotels where the decor is suitably cool, the atmosphere more casual, and the cakes and Assam tea have been swapped out for gourmet burgers and crispy fries. There's even a smattering of tiny townhouse boutiques to choose from.

How much do Hotels typically cost in Dupont Circle?

Being one of the most central districts in the capital, the prices tend to be a little higher than you might find elsewhere. That said, it's probably not as high as you might imagine with prices hovering at somewhere between $350 and $450 for a 4 to 5-star in the low season. Drop down a star or two and the hotels become much more affordable. You can expect to pay around $200 for a 3 to 4-star along one of the roads that lead off Dupont Circle. If you look around a little, there are even a few rooms to be found under the $100 mark.
